Day One on the MS Oosterdam

The MS Oosterdam is one of many in the Holland America Fleet. The Oosterdam is 935 feet long, 106 feet wide and weighs 82,000 tons. She accommodates 1875 guests and 794crew and staff. She travels at 23 knots. On our trip we traveled 4900 nautical miles. One nautical mile equals 1.15 statue miles equals 1.852 kilometers.

Laura, you can skip the first three courses and order 4 desserts!! = ) Of course I never did, but one can. Sometimes I skipped the appetizer or soup/salad course. And, with great difficulty, I skipped the bread.
